    Interest Gathering - PA Nature Based Learning

    May 17, 2021
    7:30 pm to 9:00 pm, 2 hours
    Join us for a brief webinar, and a Q&A to learn about Nature Based Learning in PA. Join other Nature Based Learning advocates in discussing the formation of a coalition that supports anyone involved in the critical work of increasing outdoor access for PA youth. We are aware of the many amazing organizations doing some of this work, and we want to be a platform for all these organizations to be able to band together to make even more change.

    Meeting goals are to find out: What organizations and individuals in PA are already working toward increasing access to the outdoors; where the broad group of those intertwined in the efforts to bring more youth outdoors see work that needs to happen; whether there are initiatives that organizations are interested in participating in and/or what goals to organizations have in this regard.
